Synopsis:
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are ideal as malevolent marrieds Martha and George in first-time film director Mike Nichols' searing film of Edward Albee's groundbreaking 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'. Taylor won her second Academy Award (and New York Film Critics, National Board of Review and British Film Academy Best Actress Awards). Burton matches her as her emotionally spent spouse. And George Segal and Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Sandy Dennis score as another couple straying into their destructive path. The movie won a total of five Academy Awards and remains a taboo-toppling landmark over 40 years later.

Ultimate Burton/Taylor film. - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
27/11/2012

Pretty much a filmed stage play. But the relentless, spiky and incisive dialogue, and most of all, an intense acting tour de force from Taylor/Burton easily overcome this impediment. Beautifully photographed.

If I wanted to watch drunk people shouting at each other, I'd go into town at the weekend. The stars are for the acting.
